UPDATE - Kidspiration Math Project
First grade students are amazing! At least 15 students successfully completed the previously discussed KidSpiration Project. (They were donut makers and had to make enough donuts to feed their customers. Then they rolled two number cubes to find out how many actual customers they had. Finally, using subtraction students figured out how many donuts they had for the next day!)
Positives: student collaboration, critical thinking, motor skills, and a mountain of other skills applied by students.
Challenge(not a lot): The template boxes changed or moved, saving to a central drive (working with tech. services on this.)
The positives far out weigh the negatives. It was a great experience for everyone and we'll be coming up with more!
